Our mission is to enhance the image of professional Hispanic women by creating opportunities to share knowledge and promote the value of higher education.

The Hispanic Professional Women's Association, Inc. (HPWA) is an organization that provides opportunities for professional and personal development, nurturing relationships and giving back through mentoring and scholarships. HPWA was founded in May 1990 in Tampa, Florida by a group of Hispanic professional women as a non-profit corporation, registered in the State of Florida. In March 1993, The Department of Treasury, Internal Revenue Services granted HPWA tax exemption under section 501(c)(6) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.
